My Entry into Cheryl Simone Crafts Challenge ~ 1st Time Using Prima Papers

hello it’s ashley here from paper and twine welcome to my channel welcome if you’re new here welcome if you are an existing subscriber um i’ve come on today to show you my entry to sheryl simone’s road to 300 subscribers giveaway challenge and i don’t show everything that i make for challenges because you’d be bored senseless um but i thought i’d come on today and show you what i’ve made because i’ve put quite a bit of effort into it and i’ve also made some things and used some products that i’ve never made before and i thought you might be quite interested in that so first off i’ve made a card and obviously i’ve made my envelope as well this paper i believe is from julie hickey it was free in a little stamping book that she produced donkeys years ago and i thought i’d use this up it’s quite nice isn’t it reversible and using up scraps um this is my favorite size of card at the moment and you cut your card to 11 inches by four inches so you’ll get two out of a sheet of a4 and you score at five and a half and i just really like this size and i like the fact that it opens this way obviously you could have it as a tenth fold as well and just done the grouting technique i dream of stars that glitter brightly is a combination of tim holtz clippings and um a remnant rub so grouting technique using papers that i think go quite nicely together so that’s the card because you have to send a card don’t you then the actual challenge itself was to make a tag now i’ve made some tags i did it for the um christmas in july collab that i took part in um so those were the first tags that i made but i’ve never made a tag for a challenge and this had to be a specific size it was two and a half by five um so this is what i’ve done i’ve gone back to my favorite stamp i’m just going to take this out a minute so this is the front of the tag and um this portion here is one stamp the leaf is a separate stamp this is a separate stamp and that’s a separate stamp um and i’ve just used one of my multi-colored backgrounds cosmic shimmer and this little bit has got little dots on it but um i like to stick the little silver micro beads on i think they just look adorable i really like those um and then on the front i made another little tag a narrow tag because this was a little bit of waste off this piece and i thought i can’t waste that so i just cut my own little tag shape edged it with black sharpie stamped the leaves um several times and then um this sentiment just fit on um to be overcome by the fragrance of flowers is the most electable form of delight isn’t that gorgeous and there’s a little purple eyelet through there with a bulb pin and then and i recently bought um i know it was naughty um a julie hickey frames set the six in the set and um using scraps of background again i’ve just stamped the image on a little scrap of square card each flower aren’t they gorgeous lovely stamps and then on the back of each one i think i’ve put a little word oh yeah a little um i’m trying to be good and use my clippings tim holtz clipping stickers i’ve been hoarding them for years um but yeah i’m trying to use them so dreams come true the power of thinking beauty and grace fill my soul um the loveliest things so those could be like little journaling cards little tiny journaling cards that sit in this front pocket like that and i’ve got that all in a mess that’s not sitting nicely now i’ll sort that out off camera then on the back um again a combination of um the stamps and i’ve made a little pocket and tried to do it so that it was a continuous image i didn’t quite manage it on the front i’ve got yeah well i drew that black line on the pocket um but i didn’t line it up either um so again a little scrapper didn’t want to throw away just made a little tag with a little bit of silk thread and a little tiny bead through it don’t eat the daisies just love that little bit of lime green there and i’ve just put on the back made for cheryl august 2021 and then um this was the sixth um image in that stamp set so i used the five flowers on the front and foliage one on the back and again a little eyelet and i um colored that cream silk thread with um an alcohol marker and then there’s my details so um it’s a little flippy uppy bit and i’ve hand written these so um i’m just covering my address up another little bit there my details so that sits in the pocket like that i’ll put that all back in its envelope in a minute and then i made an extra um this is heavy actually i think she’s going to cost me quite a lot of money to post i know that cheryl stocks um echo park i’ll leave a link to cheryl’s channel and um she’s got an amazing um website and she sells lots of gorgeous american papers and this is the fashionista collection from echo park which i won in a competition run by zushi hushi t and um yeah it’s a it it’ll fit in a six by six envelope and um i’ve used patterned paper on the front a little tag that i cut out um this was a sticker that i’ve just mounted on a panel of white card and then i don’t think you’re going to see this very well it is a pop-up card how cool is that i love it i love it my husband said why why a pop-up card i don’t know whether yeah you can see um and i’ve just used different papers from that fashionista collection and there’s a space on the back to write a message so um shower can keep this and have hours of fun with the interactivity it is such good fun to make and it looks really impressive but it is so easy and yeah i love it love it love it love it um so she can choose to give that to somebody or keep it or whatever it’s very heavy and then the final thing that i made um i used paper that i bought from cheryl’s store and this is prima and it’s the first time i’ve used prima in a project it’s the first time i’ve ever used echo park in a project as well um and i bought nature lover because you know i love my nature and i’ve made a little box it’s not perfect it’s the first time i’ve done this but we have a little box and i’ve just used elements to decorate the box and it’s got a little drawer and i don’t know whether you’ll see this on camera very well but you pull and that pops up and there’s a magnet to keep that closed down so the draw is a little snug i need to just do it several times to get the mechanism and um yeah i’m also not very good at cutting with a with a um blade i either had to cut this aperture out the top of the wrap but then inside the drawer we have a little book and i’ve made a little notebook and it says field notes and these are all little elements i won’t take them all out but then i’ve made them into little journaling cards so there’s a little pocket on each page with a little journaling card um inside and then tim holtz clipping stickers so we’ve got thinking of earlier days with the butterfly this botanical bit this was all off one sheet and i’ve cut them down rounded the corners and gone around the edge with distress ink this is backgrounds scraps of backgrounds that i’ve made into the little pockets all that i know very fragile remnants i thought that was nice because butterflies are very fragile aren’t they to fly it to your heart just a memory the sweet prize of life a happy place to be life is wonderful all in a moment and the little things and i’ve got to smell the roses please on the back and field notes on the front so i thought that that was quite a nice idea um if you’d like me to do a tutorial on this i’m happy to do so i need to practice cutting a bit first because i am hopeless at cutting but i had great fun using the products and um i would definitely be buying more when i’ve got a little bit of bit of money um so i hope you like what i’ve made for cheryl i hope that sheryl likes it as well um go over and subscribe to it if you’re not already let’s just have another go with that oh i like it because it pops up and then because it’s got a magnet it sits down love it love it love it shouldn’t blow my own trumpet should i really um that’s me done i’ll obviously wait until um cheryl has received everything before i post this um so i will be back soon take care everybody bye now
